Course overview

There's so much more to sport than the action on the playing field. Player contracts, broadcast rights, sponsorships, behaviour, health and safety, and the rights and responsibilities of sporting organisations make modern sport as dynamic off the field as on it.

This unique double degree will enable you to practise as an exercise science professional and a lawyer. You'll develop abilities across commercial and employment contracts, litigation and tax and a solid preparation for a career in the sport  and exercise industries.

During the course you complete a 140-hour exercise science placement and you can also undertake professional placement with legal firms or offices. This is a rare opportunity to explore the health and legal issues that impact the athletes we admire and the sports we love.

Diverse career opportunities exist, whether specialising in exercise science or the law. The health, sport, fitness and leisure industries are increasingly recognising the value of exercise professionals with a depth of legal understanding. Applicants who do not have the required entry mark are encouraged to apply for the Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science in the first instance.

The weighting of assessment marks between assignments and examinations also varies. Assessment methods in the Bachelor of Exercise Science also vary from unit to unit.

Teaching methods

The Bachelor of Sport Science and Exercise Science, Bachelor of Laws double degree is not offered online. However, law students may be able to complete units online.

On-campus students experience a variety of teaching approaches including face-to-face lectures and tutorials. Some units offer online activities, classes, pre-recorded and/or live lectures. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit. 

The online study option is highly interactive and strives to promote collaboration and a sense of community. Students may receive online pre-recorded and/or live lectures, electronic study materials, workshops, online discussion forums and virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.

Attendance at on-campus workshops is a requirement of the Bachelor of Laws for on-campus and online students. The workshops provide students with an opportunity to network, engage in a range of learning experiences and skills required at an LLB level that cannot be taught effectively solely online, and meet key representatives of the legal profession who address issues of contemporary legal practice and professional conduct. For more information, go to law workshops.

Career opportunities

Graduates will have an array of opportunities to employ their legal skills across the health, sport, fitness and leisure industries, as employees or in private practice. There are several career paths that combine a knowledge of health, sport, fitness or leisure industries with law in sports administration and management or as a lawyer with a specialisation in sports-related issues.

Professional placement

Law students can undertake voluntary legal experience and professional placement with legal firms or offices, to complement their practical legal skills and become familiar with the issues facing working lawyers.

Students complete a 140-hour exercise science professional placement in the third year of the course. Placements might be in health and sporting centres, clubs, schools and academies or sport and recreation centres.

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Laws fulfils the academic requirements for admission to the legal profession in Australia. Professional admission authorities also require law graduates of all universities to complete practical legal training or similar to be eligible to practise as a lawyer.

Students who intend to practise law outside Australia should check with the relevant country’s admission body to confirm their practising requirements.
